Subject: diagnosing by smell

""You are probably too young to remember when the
screw worm fly was
rampant in the south, but that was another problem I
learned to detect
by smell alone. It's a rotten meat kind of smell.""

I think we still see screw worms, but we refer to them
as "wolf worms" (technical term cuterebra) here. And
we can tell an animal that is infested with maggots
from ten feet's a very distinctive wet,
rotten meat smell.
